Submissions and nominations are encouraged from across the global broadcast media technology audience to showcase talent across the industry whether in a manufacturer, service provider, engineer or broadcaster role. The awards are free to enter and nominations will close on Aug. 18, 2022, with a drinks event at IBC to announce the shortlist.
